MFR Model# P5000


Changing hot engine oil has never been easier! With the SAF-AIR oil drain valve, no wrench is needed to remove the drain plug. A simple push and turn of the SAF-AIR valve locks it in the open position. The valve is made completely from anodized aluminum and stainless steel components. These materials are used throughout the aircraft industry due to their strength and durability. FAA & PMA APPROVED.

Product Notes:
  1. NEVER fly the aircraft with the drain hose attached to the oil drain valve.
  2. Make sure that your landing gear will not activate the oil drain valve when you retract the gear inside the fuselage.
  3. Remember, the valve may fit on your engine, but it is your responsibility to make sure that the valve will work with your application.

Installed easily and easy to use

Looks nice but it has only worked until the first oil change then has leaked ever since. Weak spring tension and thin wrench surface make it a really poor choice in a drain valve. Use the Curtis one.
